Agile methodology is used in a fast paced and adept organization with small team size and active participation from key stakeholders (product owner). But how do you implement these practices in an organization that is slow to change (Federal sector) with big teams (40+) and stakeholders that are reluctant to active participation. This presentation will show how we can implement Agile principles in such an environment with proven methods to streamline the requirements, development and testing efforts. These methods are now being used for other projects within the federal agency.

About the PM Industry Insights

PM Industry Insights is PMIWDC's workshop series that addresses the practical aspects of Project Management.

These sessions are to provide you with insights on what is going on in the local industry so you can learn from it. This discussion-based session will include presentations on tools, industry panels, interviews with industry experts, workshops, etc. The target presenters will be individuals from PMO’s, university professors, consultants, etc. 

Both PM Industry Insights and the monthly dinner meeting are worth 1 Professional Development Unit (PDU) each to certified PMPs.
